I have noticed that the “Write” portion of RRW has been purely generating content. Part of my degree background focused in creative writing in digital environments, yet it is the part of my education which I tend to neglect the most. Creative writing is exceptionally personal and quite gratifying, but it’s also hard for me to share. While I dream of becoming a novelist, I have close to ten unfinished manuscripts. One of the hardest things I struggle with is committing to writing a story. I dream of being the next J.K. Rowling, but sadly, my insecurity is one of my greatest obstacles.
I elected to sign up for The Daily Post‘s Writing & Blogging 101 Challenge. Since I have been blogging on and off since university, I wanted to focus on generate content. I hope that I can dedicate time to participate in the writing tasks. With the prompts being released at 12AM, even on those mornings when I have an early start, I can mill over ideas throughout the day. My goal is to generate content, even while I am flying, with editing and publishing on my off days. I have no clue if I will be able to make the material generated relevant to the theme for my site, but I will do my best to table my pride and post-post-post! Living with most of my personal effects packed (including my writing books from undergrad) really makes grabbing for reference books a challenge.
My gal pal, Christy, constantly pushes to write and put herself out there. It’s one of the things I’ve always appreciated about her friendship. After I graduated university, I found myself working in a clerical job that was anything but challenging. Christy pushed me to attempt National Novel Writing Month several years in a row. I still maintain a profile on NaNoWriMo, it would seem I cannot change my user name without deleting my current account. The close proximity to November, I don’t want to risk changing my data without being able to guarantee the ability to register for my desired user handle.
I feel like I don’t express my gratitude enough on here, so Christy… Thank you. Thank you for pushing me to write. Inspiring me to write. Challenging me to write. I hope that one day I may be a proper writer like you.
